Annotation Report

The PDF Annotation Report on DroneDeploy lets you create printable or sharable PDF documents of your drone maps. It’s great for collaborating or reporting.

The Annotation Report is available in the Report section within a Project or in the Reports section of your Exports tab for single maps, and includes a PDF file of your map, table of annotations, sharing, co-branding and more.
